7:06 am
complaints against non-sworn not only were we denied access to photos but denied access to the list of psas by station and so we have things to work out and we don't agree with the legal opinion however, it has to be with the labor code so we're trying to work this out there's a provision of the labor code that is being applied so the opinion came from the departments attorney and but it also it is being concurred with - i
7:07 am
shouldn't say it is concurred we're still looking at it with our attorney they're often in the city attorney's office, however, and that is attributable for us it sets aside a practice that we've having had for many years and not and perhaps the labor code provision is determined but certainly makes things less transcript and it frustrates the complainants ability to have the complainants complaint heard so. >> is that an issue of first impression have we dealt with this before it is a frustrating practice in the past is it

7:10 am
it is a good time as any to get st. it clarified. >> and commissioner turman if i might i mean at ms. franco it is the interpretation of the employer what the city attorney has o pined an employer is each department of the city and so what it labor code prohibit is one employer providing another employer affirmative. >> i know the section now. >> okay it is interesting interpretation of the labor code but okay. thank you very much >> okay. do i have a motion to file the quarterly report. >> second. >> all in favor, say i. opposed? motion passes unanimously
